“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20 (ESV).

Discipleship is central to all that we do at Meadowbrook Baptist Church. In obedience to the Great Commission, Meadowbrook Baptist Church stresses the practice of the basic spiritual disciplines—Bible reading, prayer, and Scripture memory. As believers grow spiritually, these disciplines should become a part of their daily walk with Christ. We believe that discipleship is a never-ending process, because it is how we become more like Jesus Christ.

We desire that our ministries equip our members to be disciple-makers and provide opportunities for members to be involved in discipleship. Sunday Bible Study, small group Bible studies, and D-groups are three ways in which our members become involved in the process of discipleship. The small group Bible studies and Sunday Bible Study are the equipping ministries, while D-groups are the means by which discipleship is accomplished within our church. D-groups are the catalyst through which mentoring and leadership development produces disciples who will continue to produce other disciples.

We encourage our members to develop intentional relationships with two to four other people in order for genuine discipleship to occur. Without intentional relationships, servant leadership and the practice of spiritual disciplines, discipleship will not occur and spiritual growth will not take place.
